Assignment: I am a Muslim in America
iREPORTERS SIGNED UP
Created September 15, 2014 by
Donald Trump came under fire Thursday night for his handling of a question at a town hall about when the U.S. can "get rid" of Muslims, for failing to take issue with that premise and an assertion that President Barack Obama is Muslim. The topic of being Muslim in America has become a recurring theme this year, from the Trump town hall to a Texas teenager being arrested for a homemade clock.
In the wake of the latest news we are asking Muslims in America to share their reactions. How do you feel about the news? What do you want the world to know about Islam? What is it like being a Muslim in America?
